Alumni success story: Karl Buesching – Eliassen Group

By Adam Curtis

A Navy veteran with an established technology career, Karl Buesching was not a typical candidate for Catalyte’s software developer training and apprenticeship program. However, with his specialized area of expertise no longer in demand, Karl spent nearly a decade looking for a way back into the industry. A Craigslist ad promising “software developer training – no experience necessary” proved to be that way back in.

Now a successful consultant, Agile coach and certified ScrumMaster, Karl talked with us about his journey into, out of and then back into the tech industry.

He also discussed how the industry can improve discovering and hiring talent that really represents the communities it’s trying to serve and how Catalyte has its thumb on the pulse of diversity and inclusion.
